Andy Weber: Tibetan Art Lecture
Tibetan Art Lecture (Guru Rinpoche)
TALK with Andy Weber
FRI | 19.30 - 21.00 | 7 Dec
This course will explore the remarkable mahasiddha Padmasambhava ( the lotus born), who stabilized the first wave of Dharma into Tibet in the 8th century. Known for his mystical and magical powers he laid the foundation for the old school Nying.ma. Even today his followers still rely on his hidden treasures (termas) and the direct teaching and instructions he left behind.
This course will explore his prophecies and the importance of his two consorts Mandrava and Yeshe Tsogyal
Hands-on-tuition will be given for drawing and painting techniques. Besides instructions like canvas making and natural colours, we will make colour charts with modern paints to simplify the painting process.
Meditation, mantra recitation and prayers will make this course a unique and deep experience. The end result is not as important as the path getting there.
A modest artistic talent is required. Genuine perseverance and devotion to the subject are the important qualities students should bring along.
Attending all lectures is important to gain an insight into the importance of Guru Rinpoche’s position in transmitting the Dharma from India to Tibet.
